Joe Biden warned that American democracy in serious danger from Republican forces loyal to Donald Trump who “to fan the flame” of political violence in the pursuit of power in any cost.
Prime time address from Philadelphia city where American democracy was born, the President of the United States said that the United States in continuation battle for soul of nation.”
This is a repetition of a theme that animated his campaign for White House in 2020 to determine rates of the November election as an existential choice between his party’s Russian agenda and the “extreme magician ideology” of the Republicans.
“Donald Trump and Maga Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of of our republic,” Biden said. in speeches delivered at Independence Hall.
Maga short arm for “Make America great againTrump’s slogan in the 2016 election. campaign.
Biden stressed that not all, not even most, Republicans are “magician extremists,” but he said there was no doubt that party he was “dominated, led and intimidated” by his White House predecessor and possibly a potential successor.
These Trump Republicans, he says, “thrive on chaos” and “disrespect the constitution” or rule of law. They “promote authoritarian leaders and fan the flames of political violence,” he continued, adding that they believe there are only two possible election results: either they win or they were deceived.
“You can’t love your country when only you win” Biden said to thunderous applause.
The merciless speech was part of new aggressive line of attack Biden unleashed on Republicans ahead of midterm elections because party enjoys flamboyant political views, aided by rope of significant legislative victories and building public reaction to the decision of the Supreme Court decision abolish the constitutional right to abortion.
it also comes like Trump, sometime again in the center of a criminal investigation is one including classified documents – lays the foundation for potential president of 2024 run.
“The magician’s forces are determined to push this country back,” he said. “Back to America where there is no choice, no right to privacy, no right to contraceptives, no right to marriage. who you love.”
Biden also whipped republicans for increased aggressive political rhetoric, including language target federal agents after the FBI confiscated the crates of Secret documents from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate last month.
protection of democracy was a through line of Biden rise to the White House, which he said was motivated by racist violence in Charlottesville. Although he promised build national unity as president, forces unleashed by Trump’s lies of a stolen Election 2020 has just gained momentum in almost two years that Biden was in office.
Polls show that most of Republicans Don’t Believe Biden Is Legitimate elected the president. Opponents of the elections are running for office providing nominations for key messages with power over how future elections will be held. State and local election commission officials targeted of insults and threats.
“History says us blind loyalty to one leader and willingness to participate in political violence fatal to democracy,” Biden said, vowing to defend the national system of government with “Each fiber of my being.”
Thursday’s prime time speech was second of three presidential visits in less than a week before the battlefield in Pennsylvania, which play hold several consecutive races in this election season.
Among the most troubling, democracy experts warn, of Doug Mastriano, far-right Republican candidate for governor in Pennsylvania who was leading figure in Trump’s attempts to overthrow results of 2020 election in the state and helped the minibus people at the Trump rally in Washington on January 6, which preceded attack on US Capitol.
In Pennsylvania, the governor appoints secretary of the state that gives next governor huge influence over how 2024 presidential election is underway in state.
Without naming candidates by name, Biden said election deniers are running for office saw them failure prevent peaceful transmission of power in 2020 as “preparation” for future elections.
Nevertheless, Biden sought avoid throwing it fight as a guerrilla, claiming that it is his “duty” as president to speak directly about threats facing nations, regardless of their origin. Instead, he hoped his remarks would serve call To arms for majority of Americans who reject Trumpism and urged them not to be “bystanders”. in it continues attack on democracy”.
“For a long time we convinced ourselves that American democracy was guaranteed. But that’s not the case,” Biden said. “We have to protect him. Protect him. Stand up for It. Each one of us”.
Congressman Kevin McCarthy, House Republican leader and staunch Trump ally, addressed the president from Biden’s birthplace. of Scranton, Pennsylvania. In his speech, McCarthy blamed Biden of “I do everything in his power crush the soul of America” and demanded an apology from the president for blaming Republicans of be attached to philosophy of “semi-fascism”.
McCarthy made no mention of January 6 attack or widespread denial of the election embraced by the majority of his party supporters of Russia and many of their nominations for public office.
It was more like Trump. who turned to events of January 6 on Thursday, promise of pardon and apology for those who participated in in deadly attack on US Capitol, if it were elected to the White House again.
“I mean full forgives with an apology to many,” he told Wendy Bell, conservative radio host on Thursday. “I will beg very, very strongly for mercy, full forgives.”
Trump is going to hold a rally in Scranton on Saturday.
Critics speak of the president’s belligerent rhetoric shows that he has failed in his promise to unite the nation. Ronna McDaniel, Chair of Republican National Committee calls Biden ‘separator-in-chief’ who “set the neighbors against each other” with his divisive agenda.
White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, said it was clear Biden had “hit nerve” and made Republicans feel uncomfortable with his urgent appeal for Americans to abandon Trumpism.
But America’s political divisions run deep. As Biden said outside at Independence Hall, he was repeatedly interrupted by an expletive shouting profanity. Biden said he has the right to be “outrageous” because “this is a democracy.”
“We are still a democracy at our core,” Biden said as he concluded his speech. with slogan: “Democracy!”
